I'm a woman, 22 years old. Yesterday I got a pantomogram, the technician didn't put proper protection, I was confused, got a small skirt that covered only behind, I moved it to the front because I didn't understand. The radiologist said nothing about it and made me do the thing, with my ovaries not covered.
After this I searched about it on the internet I discovered that is obligatory to wear protection in my country (italy). In fact I already got a pantomogram in the past and wore protection all over my body. Now the damage is done, what can I do about it? what are the risks? I don't want to be reassured, I want to know what has happened and the enthity of the risk. what happens when x radiations hit the reproductive sistem?
By the way I'm not sure it was a digital machine because I got an old style X-ray result right after.
thanks in advance
PS not a native english speaker, never been outside italy so maybe my english is a little messed up, sorry
